Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole

1/2 c. butter
1 cup crushed ritz crackers
1 Tbsp. poppy seeds
4 chicken breasts (cooked and cubed)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1½ c. sour cream

½ c. crushed ritz crackers
3 Tbsp. parmesan cheese

Melt butter, add crackers and poppy seeds. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into a 9x13 inch pan. Top with ritz cracker topping. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

**my suggestions for easy goodness**
Place chicken in crockpot with the can of cream of chicken over top. Cook on high for 4 hours, shred and combine with all other ingredients. Chicken is very moist and so easy.

Teriyaki Chicken Sandwiches

4 chicken breasts
1 bottle Teriyaki sauce (we used Lawry's brand)
3/4 c. brown sugar
4 slices deli ham
1 can sliced pineapple (or you can use fresh which would be even better)
4 slices Pepper Jack cheese
4 large hamburger buns

Pound chicken breasts until they are about 1/4" thick all around. Place in a large Ziploc bag. Combine Teriyaki sauce and brown sugar until sugar dissolves. Add 1/2 of the mixture to the bag with the chicken and seal tightly. Place bag in refrigerator for at least 4-5 hours. Separate remaining Teriyaki mixture into 2 separate bowls (to prevent cross contamination use 2 separate brushes too)-- one for the pineapple, one for the chicken. Open pineapple can and save a little of the juice in a bowl. Place chicken and pineapple on the grill (medium heat). Brush with Teriyaki sauce every few minutes until chicken and pineapple are done-- try to only flip the chicken and pineapple once. Either on the grill or in a frying pan, cook ham with a little of the pineapple juice until it becomes nice and hot. Slice open hamburger buns and place a piece of cooked chicken on each bottom bun. Top with cheese, ham, grilled pineapple, and bun top. Serve immediately with remaining grilled pineapple.

Parmesan Baked Potatoes

6 small potatoes, scrubbed and cut in half
1/4 cup butter
grated parmesan cheese
garlic powder
other seasonings (to personal preference)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter and pour into a 9x13 inch pan and spread evenly across the bottom. Generously sprinkle parmesan cheese and lightly sprinkle other seasonings all over the butter. Place potato halves face down on the butter and seasonings. Place in preheated oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan. Serve on a plate with a side of sour cream for dipping.
This is how mine actually turned out, pretty huh!
They were delicious, I will make baked potatoes
like this lots.

Yogurt Pancakes

For the pancakes:
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. sugar
3 eggs
2 1/2 - 3 c. plain yogurt (or 2 c. buttermilk)
1/2 c. butter, melted
2 c. all-purpose flour

Mix all ingredients. If it seems too thick, add milk a little at a time until it reaches a good "pancake batter" consistency.

For the syrup:
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup butter
3 Tablespoons corn syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla

Bring first four ingredients to a boil in a large pot. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and stir constantly for 5 minutes. Add baking soda and vanilla. Remove from stove and serve over pancakes, waffles or french toast. (The syrup will be thin-- this is normal. After it cools off a bit it thickens up. Store any extra syrup in the fridge for later use.)
**The baking soda will make it boil high so make sure you use a large pot.***

Creamy Meatballs

1 lb. ground beef
2-3 carrots, shredded
1 large potato, shredded (raw)
1 yellow onion, grated
1 egg
1/2 c. bread crumbs
red pepper flakes, to taste
salt and pepper to taste

1 can cream of chicken
1 can cream of mushroom
1/2 c. sour cream
1 can milk
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste

Preaheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix meatball ingredients together. Roll into fairly large meatballs and place in a lightly greased 9 x 13 baking dish or large casserole (you will have to put them pretty close together and that's ok). Bake for 25-30 minutes (you can also brown them in a skillet instead of baking them but I am all about putting in the least amount of effort). Mix sauce ingredients together in a medium sized mixing bowl and mix with a whisk until creamy. After meatballs are browned, pour sauce evenly over the meatballs and place back in the oven for another 15-20 minutes (or until sides are hot and bubbly). Serve over rice.

Thai Chicken Skewers

"chicken on a stick" You can also grill these on a George Foreman Grill if inside.

2 large limes
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup chunky peanut butter
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
1 Tbs. minced ginger
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 Tbs. soy sauce
3 Tbs. firmly packed light brown sugar
1 Tbs. Asian sesame oil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about 1 1/2 lb. total, cut into thick strips
1 small head romaine lettuce, cored and leaves shredded
1 cucumber, peeled and sliced


Marinate the chicken
Place 8 bamboo skewers in cold water to soak until ready to use. Grate 1 tsp. zest from the limes and squeeze 1/4 cup juice.

In a bowl, whisk together the lime zest, lime juice, vinegar and peanut butter until smooth. Stir in the cilantro, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar and sesame oil. Reserve about 1/2 cup of the mixture in a separate bowl to use as a sauce. Add the chicken to the marinade and turn to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes, or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.

Cook the chicken
Prepare a medium-hot fire in a grill. Or, preheat a broiler.

Remove the chicken from the marinade, discarding the marinade. Divide the chicken strips among the 8 skewers, threading the strips on lengthwise. Place the skewers on the grill rack, or put them on a baking sheet and place under the broiler. Cook, turning once, until seared on the outside and opaque throughout, about 6 minutes total.

Divide the lettuce, cucumber slices and chicken skewers among 4 plates. Drizzle with some of the reserved sauce and serve immediately, passing the additional sauce at the table. Serves 4.
May want to make extra sauce!

Homemade stuffing

cubed bread
saute onions with S&P

8-10 slices wheat bread
1/2 onion
3 T butter
1 can cream of mushroom
chicken stock

Not really a recipe just a method. Cube your bread, set aside. Saute onion in butter, add S&P. Mix all in a bowl, the bread, soup, onion, sage, and chicken stock to moisten. This will be mushy. Put in a shallow dish, I stir mine several times so that it all gets toasty, sometimes the bottom is slightly mushy. So much better than from a box.

{I asked how my Grandma does her's and this is her run down, different than mine. She browns breakfast sausage and drains the fat. She adds onion and celery, then to moisten the bread cubes which she has browned in the oven, she adds drippings from the turkey, her's is very delicious, I will try that way next year}

Wilted Spinach and Bacon Salad

I feel like a newly inspired woman!
I went to a cooking class featuring ShirleyJ cooking essentials
Universal sauce, seasonings, etc.
This is a recipe in their order book. I am waiting for my sauces to come in,
so future ShirleyJ recipes to come.

Here is the real recipe:
2 T ShirleyJ Pizza and Pasta Seasoning Mix
8 strips of bacon
3 oz feta cheese
12 oz bag of baby spinach
1/3 C red onion diced
1/3 C dried cranberries
1 Fuji apple, sliced
1 t brown sugar
1/4 C balsamic vinegar
1 T water

Cook the bacon, save the drippings. Crumble bacon in a bowl with spinach, cranberries and apple. Into a small saucepan combine the bacon drippings, onions, vinegar, water sugar and seasoning. Cook on low 4-5 minutes. Toss warm dressing in the salad. Garnish with Feta.

My twist:
The dressing seemed to need a little bit more brown sugar
after only pouring on half of the dressing I added more to the remaining
=much better, I think 2 t of brown sugar instead of 1 {maybe more}
I didn't have red onion, I used dehydrated {still delicious}
I always cook my bacon in the oven, 400 degrees 15 minutes
it always cooks perfectly, always.
I will also put on walnuts or pecans next time for a little crunch!

Crab and Cream Cheese Wontons

1/2 pkg wonton wrappers
1 (8oz) pkg. cream cheese
1 c. fresh crabmeat (optional)
1 egg white, whipped
oil for frying

Put about 1 heaping tsp. of cream cheese in the middle of each wonton wrapper (if you are using crabmeat, mix the crab and cream cheese together before adding to the wonton wrapper). Brush egg white (or you can just use water) around the edge of the wrapper and fold over to seal (if you are confused on how to fold it, look on the back of the wonton wrapper package.. it will show you step by step how to do it). Fry in oil until golden brown. That's it! Serve with sweet and sour sauce combined with chili paste (or if you are a wimp and don't like it spicy, just serve with sweet and sour sauce).

Close as you can come to Wingers Sticky Fingers

Make sure you get Frank's hot sauce

Garlic Chicken Farfalle Pasta

16 oz. Farfalle pasta
1 c. heavy whipping cream
3-4 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
2 to 3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp. pepper*
1/2 c. butter
1 lb. bacon, crumpled**
1/2 c. shredded Parmesan cheese
1 (12 oz) Lawry’s mesquite marinade with lime juice

*Seems like a lot of pepper, but it has a wonderful flavor when everything mixes together. If you’re apprehensive, do less pepper. You can always add more.

cook your bacon in the oven (400 degrees). And it’s crispy every time.

[ directions ]

Crock pot chicken and bottle of marinade on low for 6 hours. Pull marinated chicken out of the juices, allow to cool a little bit, and shred (I pull it apart). Set this aside. About a half-hour before serving, boil the pasta. In a small saucepan, melt butter, add garlic, whipping cream, pepper, parmesan cheese, and crumpled bacon. Whisk together on low heat for 3-4 minutes. In a large bowl, pour over cooked, drained pasta, add chicken and stir through. Sprinkle a little bit more shredded parmesan cheese on top. I actually didn't have time to crock pot my chicken, I sauted it with a dry packet and just as yummy.

Creamy Chicken & Dumplings

1 lb chicken breasts
5 bouillon cubes
1 quart water
1cups bisquick
1/3 cups milk
1tbsp butter
2 stalks celery

Place chicken breasts & bouillon cubes in a large pot & cover with 2 quarts of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer for 20-25 mins until chicken is done.

Meanwhile mix together the bisquick and milk until soft dough forms. When chicken is done, remove from pot and set aside. Drop spoonfuls of dough into the chicken stock. Simmer over low heat, covered, for 10 mins. In a saute pan saute in butter the chicken and celery, adding s&p. Next add back in the chicken with sauted celery, then cook uncovered for 10 mins.

Tip: I do this for my "homemade" chicken noodle soup. Next time I am going to put chicken in a crock pot with a can of cream of chicken over top, so it is soft and shreds easy.

wondering about the eggs, there was a step I did but don't think it needs it. It called for whites of hard boiled eggs, I didn't think it added anything so I omitted it.
